It has taken all humankind until Mr. Lovelock, before someone has had the insight, in an eureka moment, to understand how our precious planet really works. We are privileged to benefit from his pluridisciplinar background and independence of thought. The breakthrough laid down in this one book, in a very entertaining style, is only comparable to a handful of stellar moments in the history of humankind: our planet is suitable for life, precisely because all forms of life ceasessly toil to render it habitable. Go ahead, change forever the way you look at the world and your assessment of you place and role on it.

Cannot recomend this highly enough. Written in a clear, undestandable and most importantly an enjoyable style, this text was recomended reading for my degree (phytochemistry and biochemistry) and I can completely understand why. One of the few 'learning' books you will thoroughly enjoy reading.

In this book J. Lovelock really shows the power of the Gaia way of thinking. It is not necessary to have read the earlier books but it sure helps!
One of the most exiting features is the insight it offers in gaia reactions over time.

I have just heard James Lovelock interviewed on the radio. He is an extremely clear, insightful and original scientist who doesn't deserve the kind of patronisation he has been given here. His findings are not 'weird', he does not presume to have 'proved' anything via science and it's not as if he wrote this book as light reading for train journeys. I myself am going to buy it, read it, and possibly review it at a later date.

... but quite heavy reading, so not ideal for train journeys. It waswritten some time ago and must have been extremely controversial then, butnow lots of 'weird' ideas are proven by science.
